Learn more about Joomla!
You can learn more about Joomla! from a Packt Publishing book. And when you buy a book from Packt Publishing, it's nice to know that a donation is made to the project on your behalf through the Packt Open Source Project Royalty Scheme. So why not get started with a simple book like Building Websites with Joomla! 1.5. Or if you want a more technical guide get stuck in with Mastering Joomla! 1.5 Extension and Framework Development.
